50 Things That Make Me Happy

The ‘50 Things That Make Me Happy’ post has been around for a little while, and it always makes me smile. As we all need a bit of positivity lately, I thought it would be a nice idea to share my list with you β™₯

I was a little bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to think of 50 things because it seems like such a big number, but actually, it was pretty easy once I got going.

You’ll find that there are so many simple pleasures out there if you take the time to look for them.

It can be all too easy to get caught up in negativity and forget about the things that make us happy, so it’s nice to be able to take time out to think about all the things that make us smile.
